To better acquaint all Crescenta Valley registered voters with the Glendale Unified School District Board of Education candidates for which they can vote in the April 3 election, the Crescenta Valley Sun presented all candidates with questions concerning the district's schools. Last week we introduced you to parent and businessman Todd Hunt. This week meet parent and businesswoman, Elizabeth Manasserian, incumbent Mary Boger and university professor Nayiri Nahabedian.
What do you think is the primary challenge for the district?
Declining enrollment which is a not only affecting Glendale but all the school districts statewide. It affects the funding for teacher salaries, programs, resources, maintenance and much more. I will be working with the community and the public in helping create awareness regarding lack of funding. We are all part of the solution. It is imperative that we all work together in voicing our concerns for our schools to our legislators. With my business experience and knowledge of financing and budgetary issues, I am capable of reaching out and making things happen.
